PRINCE MATEI Merlot

DENOMINATION OF ORIGIN:  DOC-CMD Dealu Mare; ROMANIA
 
CELLAR:  The wine is produced and bottled at Villa Zorilor - Vinarte Winery.

CLIMATE: temperate-continental, with characteristic parameters for the South Carpathian ecological region.

SOIL: reddish-brown rendzinic-argillic soils, from slightly to strongly eroded, with traces of calcium carbonate and clayey and argillaceous textures.

VARIETY: Merlot 90%, Cabernet Sauvignon 10%

ALCOHOL CONTENT: 14.5% vol.

VINIFICATION: The grapes come from selected parcels. The production is limited to 3500 kg/ha to allow the grapes to reach full maturity. Their triage is very minute, both during the manual harvesting and on the sorting belt before crushing and de-stemming. The must is sent to controlled temperature stainless steel cisterns, where the maceration and alcoholic fermentation takes place (for 25 days). The wine is racked in 225-liter French-made barriques, where the malolactic fermentation and maturation take place for a period of 12 months. After this period, the wine is bottled and kept in the cellar for minimum six months.

TASTING NOTES: Appearance: clear, ruby-red color, bright, purple-reddish reflexes. Nose: Forrest fruit (blackberries, red currant, wild strawberries), complex aromas of black pepper, chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Palate: dry, intense, full-bodied, well-balanced texture of sweet tannins, delicate astringency, prolonged after-taste.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS: the optimum serving temperature is of 18 ºC. One may serve it with red meat dishes, noble venison with complex sauces, traditional Romanian meat-based dishes, matured cheeses.

AGING POTENTIAL: the wine may be aged in bottles (10-15 years) in cellar conditions, thus acquiring a velvety texture and a complex bouquet.
